Get Your Glow On with Dior Summer Quints: Ready-To-Glow 649 & Crush Glow 659

April 6, 2010
Dior Summer 2010 has arrived in-store with two stunning quints, Ready-To-Glow 649 and Crush Glow 659. This is only a preview, I don’t have swatches, comparisons, or a full review yet, but stay tuned for an update in the next day or so. Both come in the Iridescent Eyeshadow formula and retail for $58 each. Indeed the names are suitable for both palettes because they radiate pure lovely glowiness when you open the compacts.

Ready-To-Glow 649 is a neutral-cool palette. It seems like a more neutral variation of Smoky Crystal 089, which I’m completely in love with, but the new summer quint has less intense-contrasts in colors and softer more muted shades.

Crush Glow 659 is the warmer variation, which I am happy to report isn’t too warm as I had initially thought it would be based on preview pictures. Still, it’s on the warm side, but lovely and very wearable.

I haven’t had a chance to test these on my eyes, but the testers at Nordies were extremely soft and pigmented. It seems that the summer collections come out earlier every year. This collection seems suitable for spring, although their Spring Lace Collection was equally stunning and suitable for spring. I’m just happy they released a mini collection that seems to be well suited for year round – at least in Southern California.

  • my safe side tells me to go with the Ready to Glow palette but my fun spr/summer side is begging to try the Crush Glow just to wear that melon shade in the middle of the palette!

  • they are so pretty

  • They both are so beautiful! I can't wait to see them myself. Thank you for the photos.

  • Ahh, these are both so, so pretty!

  • Omg, they are so gorgeous! I want the neutral cool palette!
    The only thing I'm missing in the Dior palettes are a matte color.. but with colors like these, I'm not really complaining πŸ˜‰

    Did Dior have any nail polishes in the Summer Collection?

    I just got back from Nordstrom with Crush Glow in hand. For those of us who like to use a bit of matte with our iridescent palettes, Bobbi Brown has several shades that work well with Crush Glow: Naked, Soft Peach, and Baby Pink.

  • Oh how lovely! I must call my Dior girl at Saks to see if these are in. It's funny though, I don't think I want Crush Glow anymore – Ready-To-Glow looks so much more unique and since I don't think I can swing both palettes, I may just get that one. We'll see =D

  • I'm going with what you find more suitable, Joey since you and are almost the same skintone!

    I wish the lower right side shadow in ready-to-glow and crush glow were together! I'll definitely try crush glow though. Thanks for posting these.
